ANOTHER NIGHT AMOTHER LENS  AT CLARENDON NORTH MIDLANDS TASMANIA

Another night another lens. As I state at the head of this blog I have long been an aficionado of the Leica Marque but for several reasons previously mentioned I switched to a Fujifilm Xpro1. As a result of the Leica connection I still have a few lenses one of them is the Zeiss 25mm Biogon. Its not the widest lens I have for the Xpro1 but it is manual and as sharp as anything I will ever need. In spite of the fact that Leica glass is very highly prized and god knows I have spent enough time with them the Zeiss M mount lenses have a warmness that Leica doesn’t possess and I feel it comes through in this shot. The blue does not have the crisp ice quality and the grass under what is normally a cool moon light looks warmer to me.
I really like the Bulb setting on the Xpro1 the screen becomes a timer when the shutter is depressed. That’s a really nice touch Fuji, thanks! I was thinking about buying a trigger trap timer to connect with my iPhone but because of the fact that Xpro1 has a threaded cable release I will put it off for a while and use my 60 year old mechanical cable release given to me as a boy by a retired press photographer from the Lancashire Evening Post.
This shot was baked too long at 32 seconds. The land is sharp but the stars have lost focus and have become ovoid, caused by the earths movement. So next time 20 seconds at ƒ2.8, 1600 ISO should catch it nicely…
